    Default Returning to kickboxing in 2016

    Whats going on everyone?

    My names Mike Caulo I am an amateur mma, kickboxing and bjj fighter. I was on a path to following my dreams to becoming a pro athlete and more specifically a pro fighter which I technically embarked on starting in 2006 but really started from 1996 when I started TKD as my first martial art.

    I am currently 28 years old and just finishing my bachelors from Stony Brook University with concentrations in Bio and Sociology. I am currently training part time between UFC Gym Huntington Station (Also a contracted coach for the location) and Long Island MMA (train 1 - 2 times per week when I am consistent which I havent been for 2 months)

    Recently in 2013 I herniated 8 discs, and caused me to slow down my training and competing and in 2015 I took the whole year off from any competition to use that time to recovery implement physical therapy, chiropractic, and aqua therapy to heal my body and re evaluate what I am doing. Especially considering I am 28 years old (I know I am old for starting a pro career). However I feel stronger and have found out that I have gotten down to 4 herniated discs.

    First I talked to my doctor about this and he said he is unsure if this is realistic and wants me to to get another mri since I never got surgery he is concerned if the mri results are showing a false report. From my research I have heard of other cases of herniated discs being healed without surgery and hope mine is one of those cases.

    So my main questions are, has anyone else dealt with herniation's and not had surgery? Have you returned to competition? Any advice?

    Looking forward to graduating spring of 2016 and cranking up my training full time and making a come back to competition.
